1 1/2 cups diced leek
I made this in my Crock-Pot one raw rainy Sunday, and it was pure comfort food. The next day, it even tasted better!
Thick enough to be called a stew, this hearty soup is easy to prepare and cooks in a single pot. Add more water or stock if you wish to have a thinner soup.
Chipotle chile provides the essential smokiness while the sliced ginger offers only a background hint of flavor. Cooked to a golden creaminess, the split peas are enhanced with sautéed, almost carmelized, vegetables and finished with a little miso, which contributes its distinctive richness.
This is a great recipe that tastes even better the next day. You can add as much garlic as 2 whole bulbs without it being overpowering–just be careful not to chop the cloves. For a stronger garlic taste, I mash a few of the cloves against the side of the pot as it cooks.
A very hearty stew that, because of the portabella mushrooms, tastes downright meaty.
This is one of our favorite chili recipes, adapted slightly to be fatfree. In my opinion, it makes more than 4 servings– consider them 4 big servings!
Here’s a recipe that’s perfect for both the Fuhrman and McDougall programs. I got it from the Veg-Recipes list, but I’ve adapted it to remove the olive oil that was used to sauté the onion. I also reduced the amount of allspice because I made it as it was listed (1/2 tsp) and it was a little overwhelming. Even with the full amount of allspice, it was very tasty–even my six-year-old liked it, and she claims not to like eggplant.
This chili is incredibly versatile. It freezes forever, it reheats as many times as you dare, you can have it with baked potatoes, in tortillas, under mashed potato.
Easy and excellent!
2 cans pinto beans, canned
1 lb tomatoes — fresh or canned, peeled and chopped, juice reserved…

A very simple but satisfying soup–actually more like a stew. Put it in your crockpot in the morning, and come home to a wonderful meal!
3 ribs celery, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium yams or sweet potatoes…
This is what I made for dinner 2 nights ago and it was very yummy!
- Banana Bread PuddingMy “little girl” turned 18 last week. I feel like I should have something profound to say on this momentous occasion, but everything that comes to mind is so trite: “Time flies.” “They grow up so fast.” “It seems like only yesterday that she started kindergarten.” There’s a reason those expressions are so overused: The […]
- The Slow Miracle of My Yoga Practice: Feeling The Whole in a PartI was introduced to the well-known Hindu fable The Blind Men and the Elephant at a very early age. At 3, my mother read me the 19th century version byJohn Godfrey Saxe from the pages of the Childcraft volume, Storytelling and Other Poems. This volume was part of a set my parents must have purchased when […]
